The Antaeus promotional was created by Justin Lewis for the Canadian Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation for their new Antaeus tournament. It is a 3D animated video showing contestants grappling throughout a number of traditional or ethnic settings pulled from Jiu Jitsu history.
The clients for this project wanted music with a very cinematic feel and a strong theme, which meant we were working with instruments found in a film orchestra. As the scene changes eras, we were able to incorporate bits of flavor representing different parts of the world (Egypt, Greece, Japan, Brazil) with a few “world” instruments.
With promotional and advertising projects, it’s often important to stick to a very tight schedule. Following the initial spotting session with our clients, the Antaeus music was fully composed, produced, and approved within a 48 hour window.
